board of supervisors lien cycle. that is a common practice and procedure where if a property owner appears at the board, the borden courages the department to work with the propertd quite pulled from the calendar. now, when the address is pulled, it's not that the fee is waived. the fee is still outstanding. but we work with the property owner. and if it's not paid during the following year, it is on the calendar for lien for the following year. so, just like to clarify that. as regards the speaker before that, once again i'd like to distance myself from that speaker. i don't like to have any association with people that spoke, you know, something of a negative nature. i'm with the department a long time. i work with a lot of different individuals, different backgrounds, races, you name it.
